Manga creator reported last October that he is planning science-fiction manga.
In an interview that is appearing in second issue of 2016 of Shueisha’s Jump GIGA (formerly Shōnen Jump NEXT!!) magazine on Saturday, manga creator Masashi Kishimoto confirmed that he is already planning his next project, and that he has already done research for it. He said in the interview that he thinks he can announce the project this year, but there is no definite date. He did not specify the project’s form.
Kishimoto attended last year’s New York Comic Con event in October. He confirmed there that he is working on plans for his next manga, a science-fiction story.
